North Carolina truck driving schools may provide you with the training needed to earn your commercial driver's license (CDL). To obtain a CDL license in North Carolina, you must be 18 years old (21 for interstate driving), be a resident of North Carolina and obtain a medical certificate. CDL applicants must then pass a written knowledge exam and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic control skills test, and an on-road driving exam. Depending on the class of license and endorsements you need, other knowledge and skills tests may be required--for example, to drive a combination vehicle, a school bus, a tanker truck, a truck with air brakes or to transport passengers. To transport hazardous materials (Hazmat), an additional knowledge exam and a background check by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are required. North Carolina truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations.
